You need to do as well as possible in your AS examinations for the following reasons:
- These represent the relatively easier half of the marks compared to A2.
- To give yourself the best possible grounding in preparation for the very demanding concepts and ideas that you will encounter at A2. The divide between AS and A2 is at least as great as it is between GCSE and AS.
- Most A2 courses have a synoptic module i.e. a compulsory module which requires you to be able to draw upon and link together all of the AS and A2 work for that subject.
- So that we can write the most positive university/college reference we can for you. Competition for places at the best universities and colleges is fierce and you will need to give yourself every advantage you can to secure offers.
